Abstract

Biphasic sarcomatoid carcinoma of tbe breast represents only 0.2% of all breast cancer. Due to its rarity and repetitive reclassi­fications little is known about optimal treatment modalities. These tumours form a diagnostic and therapeutic challenge. The present report describes our experience with a case of biphasic sarcomatoid carcinoma of the breast and a review of the relevant literature is discussed.
